IN a WAY, THIS FILM's "SHORT TITLE" SEZ WHAT HOLLYWOOD's BEEN SAYING to MOVIE-GOERS with ITS LAUGH-FREE COMEDIES for YEARS: F.U.

CO-STARRING HALF of a WORST SCREEN COUPLE NOMINEE from the INEXCUSABLY LAME 2003 WORST SEQUEL NOMINEE DUMB & DUMBERER, THIS ONE LOOKS LIKE the ULTIMATE PAINT-by-NUMBERS "TEEN COMEDY." TAKE TWO BONE-HEADED HUNKS, SURROUND THEM WITH BODACIOUS CHEERLEADERS, COME UP with EXCUSES for THEM ALL to GET WET, NAKED (OR BOTH) and...VOILA! YOU HAVE 90 MINUTES of SURE-to-MAKE-a-FAST-BUCK COMIC HI-LARITY...

WE'RE NOT BUYING...and NEITHER SHOULD YOU.

BUT WE DO ENCOURAGE YOU to TAKE PART in OUR ANTI-CHEER for THIS TOO-DUMB-to-BE-BELIEVED, LAZY-ASS EFFORT: "TWO BITS, FOUR BITS, SIX BITS a DOLLAR -- BET THIS WASN'T WORKED on by ANY KINDA SCHOLAR!"  

DIRECTOR: "Wait a second -- Aren't you that horrible actor who was RAZZIE-nominated for one of the WORST sequels ever made...DUMB & DUMBERER??"

OTHER ACTOR (Laughing): "BUSTED!!"

Ye Olde Head RAZZberry

Take note, the "Dumb & Dumberer" star in question was also in the Razzie Worst Movie of the Weak of three years ago, "BeerFest". I'm not going to pick on this movie too much, because I'll take a harmless teen comedy over a bloody and gory remake of a 30 year old horror movie anyday. Now, whether or not it will be funny, that's up in the air. Although I do like the "Oh, hi Dick". "My name is Rick". "Oh, sorry, but you look like a Dick to me". exchange gets a little chuckle out of me. But one chuckle a great comedy doesn't make.

I disagree, I think this one looks like it could be the next Bring it On.

A lot of people laughed during the trailer when I saw this in theaters.

Oh, I agree, this might as well be titled "Bring It On 5", but I doubt it's going to be a success at the box office or get a single nod for a Razzie. Now, "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li", there's a movie that should have a place in this forum. Poor Kristin Kreuk, a beautiful young woman who chooses the ugliest projects to work on.

The sad thing about these type of movies is the trailers are usually the only best thing about them, the biggest example is "Nacho Libre". The trailer was Hilarius but the movie was the biggest wast of my time and money witch I will never got neither of back.

I agree, I'm surprised HeadRAZZ has not posted it in this forum yet. Especially since the first one was not that memorable to generate a sequel/retelling in the 1st place. My question is will they ever make a decent Video game Movie?

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Gize -- Calm down. STREET-FIGHTER doesn't open 'till Feb. 27th and may (or may not) be NEXT week's Worst of the Weak choice...

RESPONSE to Head RAZZberry: Sorry, I guess I have been hanging around Moviewizguy to long and blogged before I "cooled down"

I liked BeerFest at least. That's about the best thing I can say for Fired Up.

The thing that bothers me the most about this movie the two main guys
who are supposed to be high schoolers are played by a 31 year old and a 28
year old. I know Hollywood has a reputation for casting 20 somethings as
high schoolers but this is ridiculous. They look way too old to pass off as
high schoolers. And it is kind of creepy having these two older guys at a
camp full of younger girls.

Very true, you would think in this day and age of Disney making "stars" out of every junior high school girl (or boy) they can find, H-Wood would be able to hire some of these actual teenagers to play teenagers (granted, they still wouldn't be talented, but at least they would be acting their age). I thought the 20-30 year olds playing teenagers thing died with the original "90210".

Even if HeadRAZZ had the big and juicy balls to expose High School Musical as a piece of garbage (folks, go to YouTube and search anything regarding Anti-High School Musical, and you'll find your opinions match the makers of the videos), I don't know about the JoBros. I mean, College Road Trip was a widely panned film, and HeadRAZZ seemed to have skipped over that one (Raven-Symone's another aggravating actress alongside Brenda Song and Miley Cyrus).

But if HSM3 got a forum, then maybe HeadRAZZ can finally be fully ready to attack all these overrated fads. Hell, if I watch that Hannah Montana trailer, then I'll have commited penile suicide. Miguel, as I said, you are NOT alone in your distaste for Disney. Check out the vids on YouTube, read the negative reviews for HSM on Amazon or IMDB, and roll up a fat one as you laugh.
You think you know, but you have no idea.

Alan Rickman, who played Cameron in Ferris Buellers Day Off, was 30 when
he accepted that roll, the difference between FU and FBDO is that Bueller
was actually FUNNY and ORIGINAL.

"Bueller" is nothing short of the greatest teen comedy movie ever.

It's actually Alan Ruck, Alan Rickman is Professor Snape and other pretentious British-y characters. (Damn good actor)

That's correct! If no one's ever heard of Alan Ruck, well, I can give you another tip of a couple other projects he did: Spin City (TV Series), and the RAZZIE nominated Star Trek: Generations in the first part of the movie as Captain John Harriman, the captain of the USS Enterprise-B. He was also in Kickin' It Old School as well, plus the RAZZIE winning film Twister, and most recently, Ghost Town.

The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.
